EFI Mode Causes Restart After Power Off?

    EFI Mode Causes Restart After Power Off?


    I'm trying to diagnose a problem with my laptop: When set to EFI boot mode, if I completely shut down and power off my laptop, it restarts by itself after a few seconds. This does not happen when the laptop is set to CSM boot mode.

    I'm in the very early stages of troubleshooting; at this point I'm trying to determine whether this problem is unique to my computer, or whether other users have also experienced this. I haven't (yet) found anything similar from a web search. I wonder if it has anything to do with the Intel RST driver, but I'm not sure.

    Has anyone heard of this?

    Apparently, this situation is unique to my computer. The problem happens when a specific piece of hardware (a portable USB 3.0 drive) is attached to my computer.
